Outlook action - Get name of sender

Hi All,


Is there a way to get the name of the e-mail sender. I can get the sender e-mail address, but not the name. Any ideas?


Thanks!

Michael

Michael,


You should be able to retrieve the email address and name with the "Retrieve Emails" action instead. Then you can simply parse that information and extract just the name.


Michael, have you checked the values stored in output variable of Retrieve email action? Or you can try to find it in Outlook contact card of sender address.

Yes, I have.. It's not in there :-(
